 Civil Rights and Labor Information

 
Getting Started
XML Resource Kit - For contractors with payroll systems and will be extracting data to produce an XML file for uploading into CRL.  This site contains resources for those contractors with existing payroll systems to aid creation of an extract of payroll data for upload into CRL. https://xml.cloverleaf.net
XML Validator - For any contractor to validate XML files prior to uploading into CRL.  This can be used for either the template/spreadsheet created XML files or XML extracts from vendor payroll systems.

Excel Template - For contractors without in-house payroll systems Ohio DOT is providing an Excel Template for entry of up to 50 employee payrolls.  The spreadsheet/template needs to be downloaded from this site to get started.  Once populated users can keep payroll records by period and simply update the hours accordingly for subsequent pay periods. 

Template Conversion Tool - Upon completion for a pay period users can convert the Ohio provided template to XML for upload into CRL.  The XML conversion utillity is free to use and does not store any information.  The site takes the Excel file, converts it and provides the correctly formatted XML file back to the contractor for upload into CRL.

Training Information - Training sessions will begin May 7, 2015, and will cover implementation dates, who signs payrolls, prime contractor versus subcontractor differences, certification of payrolls, Cloverleaf site, conversion process, resources, registering for an account and identifying contract ID, project ID and vendor ID.

 About CRL

 

​Upon implementation, all Ohio DOT Construction Contracts will go through Ohio CRL System (date:  projects sold after April 15, 2015).  Requests for projects sold prior to this date should be submitted to dot.pweeo@ohio.gov

The system manages Ohio DOT's Civil Right requirement and provides contractors electronic access to submit Certified Payrolls, Bidder/Quoter Information, and Prompt Payment Reports.  It provides faster, easier and more accurate ways for contractors to meet government reporting requirements.
